Business challenge

 

As for every niche business, the challenge was to find the right talent. And when it comes to challenges here is JobCloud’s Product Owner perspective:

“Being in a niche market, with companies looking for similar profiles, recruiting the right talent to help us grow was a challenge. We were not agile enough to scale our teams when we had new projects.
JobCloud needed a reliable partner, able to provide resources skilled in different technologies, with a strong sense of communication and organization.
AROBS delivered all that and more.”
